If you’re a wildlife photographer looking for a new challenge, why not enter Wildlife Vets International’s Stories of Survival wildlife photography competition (opens in new tab)? Not only is there a prize pot worth over £10,000, but all proceeds go to support the work of the WVI.
According to Wildlife Vets International: “The idea behind the competition is to move beyond images that simply amaze and inspire us, and use participants’ skills to highlight the challenges so many of our species face.”
To enter and view the terms and conditions, visit the Stories of Survival entry page (opens in new tab). Each submitted image must: “be accompanied by a caption, describing the animal featured and one of the threats to its survival.”
The competition ends on August 11 and comprises six categories – not including separate youth and camera-phone sections. Prize highlights include a Nikon Z6 II (opens in new tab) + 24-70mm lens, two GITZO Systematic tripod kits, a GITZO Traveler tripod kit and a one-to-one online training session provided by Nikon School.
“There is still time to make a difference,” says the WVI’s executive director Olivia Walter, on the subject of wildlife conservation efforts. “But it’s going to take all hands-on deck. That is why we wanted to make this competition as accessible as possible, to really drive home the message that conservation is for everyone, not just people we see on TV, and we can all get involved and do our part”.
